Accredited testing laboratory
The Laboratory of Friendly Service and Reliable Analysis
Novalab Oy was established in 1988. It is a private, independent and an impartial laboratory for chemical and microbiological analysis of food, animal feed, water and environmental samples. Our clients come from the different sectors of the society, such as city and municipal authorities and other institutions. We have customers from the food, animal feed, food supplement and pharmaceutical industries. Customers come also from the metal, wood processing and chemical industries. We also serve environmental research companies, universities and private persons too.
We use the national and international standards for analysis. Additionally, we can also implement specific methods suitable for individual clients.
We offer analysis of crude proteins using the Kjeldahls method. Elements can be analyzed using atom absorption or emission techniques. We have three atomic absorption spectrophotometers and an ICP-AES plasma emission spectrometer. Organic compounds are analyzed using three gas chromatographs (one by the head-space device) with FID and MSD detectors and liquid chromatographs with diode, fluoresence and refraction index detectors. In chemical determinations we also use UV/VIS spectrometers and electrode techniques. In microbiology our focus is on analyzing food, animal feed and waterhygiene. We can also offer preservation and quality assurance analyses.
